Strike F1 to continue, Strike F2 for setup utility.

You might want to check if the new drive you are adding are configured to be a slave drive, you cannot put 2 HD configured to be a master in one cable.

Check the link below for steps on how to set a drive as a slave drive.

To reset your BIOS settings, look for an option that reads, Load Setup Default.
